The SAWF Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to women enrolled or who plan to enroll in a STEM related field, such as science, technology, engineering, or math. Qualifications for scholarship applications are for women to be enrolled or enrolling in a STEM field at an accredited two-year technical program, four-year undergraduate program, or graduate program that can be used for a career in the automotive industry. Since the introduction of the Scholarship Program in August 2011, SAWF has provided over $330,000 in scholarships. We were honored to award $46,100 in scholarships in July 2019 at our last annual conference in Nashville, TN. SAWF raises funds for scholarship through industry fundraising, society soirees and professional development events.
